Deer Tick & Friends + J. Roddy Walston and the Business + Dead Confederate + Virgin Forest

Head to the 'Burg for Deer Tick, whose unabashed odes to good times and boozy debauchery—employing John McCauley's Tom Waits–level growl, Southern-tinged roots and country rollicking—should be a perfect way to ring in the New Year. Openers include quirky rock quintet J. Roddy Walston and the Business and contemporary Southern rockers (think My Morning Jacket) Dead Confederate.
